Geneva – April 29, 2021 – WISeKey International Holding (“WISeKey”, SIX: WIHN, NASDAQ: WKEY), a leading cybersecurity, AI and IoT company, today announced that it has integrated a trusted vaccination certificate verification process into its WIShelter SafePass which ensures users’ privacy, security and safety. The WIShelter SafePass app provides proof of vaccination (by scanning the paper vaccination certificate, adding the digital identity of the person vaccinated, and creating a secure QRCode that can be used to prove that the person is vaccinated) and access control to facilities (airports, concert halls, etc.)
WIShelter app acts as digital health record on a smartphone. With the WIShelter app, users can control their vaccination process and at the same time keep their data safe. The WIShelter app will integrate forthcoming Digital Vaccination Passports to be issued to the EU citizens and other countries in June. Using the Digital Vaccination Passport, EU citizens can prove that they have been vaccinated, recovered, or show COVID-19 test results.
WIShelter, a totally complementary tool, uses WISeKey’s encryption technology to store people’s most important health documents. All health details are encrypted and linked to the user’s identity, represented by a Digital Certificate. Encrypting these data is important to protect users’ confidential information and ensuring that are staying up-to-date with their health credentials, and are in compliance with all privacy requirements, like the European General Data Protection Regulation (Directive 95/46/EC), known as GDPR, the primary law regulating how companies protect EU citizens’ personal data. WISeKey is a fully Qualified Trust Service Provider (TSP) under eIDAS, the updated EU regulations dealing with trusted eID and electronic transactions and Webtrust.ORG.
WIShelter includes WISeID, a trusted identity service that enables access to the web and mobile applications with strong authentication techniques. WISeID supports online KYC onboarding, OTP and digital certificate login, and an nnovative “hands-free” secure login based on QR-Codes which users can read using WIShelter SafePass mobile application without even having to type any password. Additional security services include digital signature services for documents. WISeID implements standards such as OpenID Connect and OAUTH2, that can be easily integrated by customers to enhance the security of their cloud applications. WISeID can also be combined with Microsoft Active Directory, facilitating integration with corporate applications.
The WIShelter SafePass suite was built by leaders in the clinical and technical field and allows for scalability and flexibility. It enables users to identify clinical COVID biomarkers, contact tracing, diagnostics, and triage for vaccine access, whilst keeping security at its core.
